NAME

       pilot-getrom - Retrieves the ROM image from your Palm device for use in
       debugging.

SECTION

       pilot-link: Tools

SYNOPSIS

        pilot-getrom  [-p|--port  <port>]  [--version]  [-?|--help]  [--usage]
       [-q|--quiet]   [-t|--token    token]   [-s|--sysinfo]  [--ram]  [--rom]
       [filename]

DESCRIPTION

        pilot-getrom is used to fetch the ROM from your Palm handheld for  use
       in  debugging  Palm  applications  through the use of POSE, the Palm OS
       Emulator application.

       Note, because pilot-getrom uses the low-level RPC protocol to fetch the
       ROM  image,  and  the  new  OS5  devices  do not use this protocol, you
       currently cannot fetch an OS5 ROM image using this utility.  This  will
       be updated in a future release to handle fetching OS5 ROM images, using
       the debugger protocol.

OPTIONS

   pilot-getrom options
                               -t,
                               --token token

       A ROM token to read (i.e. snum)

                               -s, --sysinfo

                               --rom

       Read ROM

                               <filename>

       Write the ROM image to  the  file  named  by  <filename>.  If  this  is
       omitted,  the  filename  will be written out as the rom version name as
       follows: ’ pilot-$VERSION.rom  ’,  where  an  OS  3.5  image  would  be
       written as the filename of ’pilot-3.5.0.rom’.

   Conduit Options

       Use  device  file <port> to communicate with the Palm handheld. If this
       is not specified, pilot-getrom will look for the $PILOTPORT environment
       variable.  If  neither are found or supplied,  pilot-getrom  will print
       the usage information.

BUGS

   Known Bugs
        pilot-getrom  does not work with OS5 devices as yet, due to changes in
       the architecture and design of the Palm HotSync protocol and file  type
       changes  from  m68k  to ARM. Other than that, pilot-getrom has no known
       bugs at this time.
